Wonderful Wednesday~sing with me

I'm having the time of my life ~ And I owe it all to you ~ WOO HOO!


These girls are so much fun and bring me so much joy! We do nearly everything together. I love having them around!


Daddy brought it to my attention the other day how easy it would have been to stop having babies after my 7th was born because I felt at times that I was beginning to run out of gas!


But I am SO THANKFUL I didn't! I am so grateful I kept my heart open to receive more gifts from Heavenly Father. After all, no gift in the world is greater or brings more joy than the gifts that come straight from Heaven. I can't imagine life without them or any of my kids. "Oh, how much I'd miss."

This is so true! We have the same thing in our family. If we had quit after our #7, we would have missed out on our 4 beautiful little girls, and this unknown new little one coming.

Like you, I'm so grateful we trusted in God's plans, rather than our own. :-)

Hi I'm releasing an eBook at the beginning of next month and was wondering if you might be able to review it. "The Matthew 6:33 Piano Teacher, How to Teach Piano For the Glory of God." It's geared towards the person who wants to make extra income by teaching piano, or the high school/college student who is seriously considering a career in music. I'd also be willing to do a giveaway if there would be interest. Let me know. Thanks! Contact me at lessonsfromivy at gmail dot com

What great pictures of the girls in their adorable dresses! Love them.

What a sweet post about your girls. I can so relate. Girlies make life laughable, pink, frilly, and fun!

I love my girlies too - I also am glad I didn't stop at 5 like we began to talk about back then - i would be three girls and one more boy short - I can not imagine!! I'm catching up on my blogging and it's nice to be back visiting you :)!

Blessings,
Christine

You have such beautiful daughters and are truly blessed!

Do you remember me? Sorry I took awhile to comment. I moved my blog. Hope you'll come and visit me sometime when you have some "free time." :)

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. We would have missed out on our youngest six children if we had stopped at five, when I felt out of gas. But God, in His mercy, granted us six more. Now our oldest five are married, and having their own children, and I assure you, it is absolutely wonderful to enjoy your daughters as they become mothers with their own children. Plus, we had only had one son in the first five, but then we ended up with four sons and seven daughters. Glory to God.

You are a blessed girl. And so are they!

Sweet post! LOVE your attitude! Like you, there were times we were tempted to "take matters into our own hands." So glad we didn't listen to the world -- or Other Christians -- but kept trusting God to give us the family He wanted us to have! Children are a blessing . . . but there can be times when they are coming close together and mama gets Exhausted! Right? I'm so glad you can encourage young moms that it is such a blessing to have a house full of children! :)

This is beautiful and God is GOOD!

I so very much agree--one thing that also emerges is that the youngest get to be babies when their parents are "granparent-age", meaning that we have a bit more wisdom and forbearance, perhaps even spoil our youngest a bit--at least this is what we are finding now that 7 are grown and we only have 8 to go...
